Rick Ross

Police Guard Rapper

Rick Ross
-- the rapper who has allegedly been targeted by a dangerous gang -- is being protected by NYC cops round-the-clock because of recent threats ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned cops have been guarding Ross at The London Hotel for the last few days.

Sources tell us, recent threats have been specifically aimed at the rapper ... and he's not taking them lightly.

You'll recall Ross' Rolls-Royce was shot up in Ft. Lauderdale last month after the rapper's birthday party while Ross was making his way home. Ross and his passenger were not injured in the attack -- clearly, the shots were intended as a warning.

Keeps your eyes on this one.. if it is from Chicago.. its just a matter of time. When i was 12yrs old in a classroom in texas...my class door was kicked in and a group of guys snatched a kid from his chair. never seen the kid again. Turns out he was older guy~ in hiding~ from a gang from Chicago. i don't anything else except they found him.

for the clueless ones; Rick Ross used to be a prison guard. does he hate cops? probably ( who doesn't ), but that doesn't matter. taxpayers money has been wasted on lamer crap than this.

he's not a real thug ( like most rappers ), it's all a game to get suburban white kids to buy their albums. and this whole thing about people trying to take down Ross is most likely a publicity stunt.

The violent-gang-thug types and their labels have taken over the 'music' industry now.Same as the gangs here in Chicago. PAY FOR YOUR OWN f'in security thug. Why I rarely stop by tmz anymore..it is becoming a black thug newswire.

Some one explain why tax dollars are being used to guard this thug. Shouldn't he have to hire his own security? If you or I were threatened I doubt we would get a personal guard.
